Hi...
is it possible when I start the turn hovering, that I attack the enemy using the advantages of hovering, and then I stop hovering in the same turn and move to an edge?
Or basically the same, when I enter a hex and place the aircraft in the middle to indicate that I hover, do I get the advantages of hovering when I then attack after the movement?
So to get to the point, do I have to spend the full turn hovering without any movement to get the advantages of the hover attack?

Thanks

Johannes

You may attack before, during, or after your move. See page 15, Aircraft Attacks. Also keep in mind that you must decide at what altitude your aircraft will fly before making any move/attack decisions. Follow the game sequence at the top of the board.

Here is the sequence for your question in particular:
d10-1 Determine altitude
d10-2 Attack (while hovering) with cannon hover benefits
d10-3 Move from hover position (center) to hex edge
d10-4 End

You could also:
d10-1 Determine altitude
d10-2 Move from hover position (center) to hex edge
d10-3 Attack (not hovering) without hover benefits
d10-4 End

Or

Determine Altitude
Move from hex edge of one hex to hover position in adjacent hex
Attack with benefit of hovering.

What you can't do is move from the hex edge to hovering position in that same hex.

If you wanted to do *that* I think you need to...

Turn 1 proceed to next hex, take up hovering position
Turn 2 move to hex edge facing your original hex
Turn 3 enter and take up hovering position in the original hex

Which is as time consuming as make a three hex circle.

Also: don't forget a hovering heli (or Harrier!) can also attack all 6 adjacent hexes (target one) with non-cannon weapons (as long as the units in the target hex are not in cover, natch.)
